Everything is mine

   

This series or collection of works is a reflection or an imitation of a state of mind that is trying to figure out what is there to be seen, to be felt, to be angry about, to laugh about. I cannot see where I am heading. I am aimless. It is immature and mature at the same time. The words are hovering around in the room and the images are planting itself in fertile soil. There is nothing new or revolutionary about the work nor my practice. Quite the opposite in fact. Tired of the art world represented on social media, in tribes gathering around certain people, newcomers, galleries etc., I find myself in a rather lonely place as I cannot and do not want to be part of any of the tribes. I am a hermit of some sort. Not by choice but rather because of experience.

The title of each work is the automatic number generated by the camera that caputures the work. The reasoning behind this decision is quite simple: First of all by giving a name (a title) to a piece of work, one projects a specific meaning onto it, a sort of a categorisation. As the work is interconnected with other works and can be viewed in different contexts, the name should also be different. Hence, I have decided to let the camera decide. The name is detached from the actual work, I think.

 

I am interested in the notion of chaos. But what is chaos? To me chaos is simply a system that one does not (fully) comprehend. I don't actually believe in chaos as such as chaos would be something that has no underlying system. Every system is relative in terms of its comprehension. For a car mechanic the working of an engine is quite comprehensible whereas I have not much knowledge how a car engine works. Data mining and processing software is capable of extracting an enormous understanding of present and future actions, figuring out erupting crises years before the actual crises etc. With my work presented here it is very similar. Everything is interconnected, sometimes the connections are more or less obvious and sometimes the connections seem far fetched, and very often there are multiple sub-connections that linkt two or more players with one another. The presentation of the work is neither random nor based on a consciously intellectual decision process.
